Nine out of ten businesses plan to increase their investment in mobile app development in the next 12 months, according to a survey conducted by Red Hat. It has been predicted that these organisations are set to increase their expenditures on mobile applications by an average of 24%.
Businesses are certainly beginning to realise the full potential enterprise mobility brings with it. 35% of the companies surveyed said mobile apps are changing the way they conduct business, whilst 37% said apps are automating their existing business practices.
2018 has seen business leaders and CIOs realise the importance of an innovative mobile strategy. There has been a real shift towards enterprise mobility and within the next two years, mobile app development is ready to have a major impact on the enterprise.
In addition, organisations are seeking to adopt newer, more agile technologies to best tackle mobile development and integration.
52% of businesses claim to have a fully implemented strategy and that figure is expected to rise as the pace of app development continues to accelerate.
Enterprise Mobility is the most revolutionary shift in client enterprise computing since the introduction of the PC. The BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) market size is set to grow from $71.9 billion in 2013 to $266.17 billion in 2019 (Whitehall Media).
Enterprise Mobility provides productivity gains and increased competitiveness and by 2019 it is estimated that half of all employers will require their employees to supply their own device for work purposes.
CIOs and product teams are now applying mobile strategies to support and evolve how they do business. It allows enterprises and their employees to stay connected and providing a tool which can be accessed on-the-go is one of the biggest assets a company can possess.
